Then Colsen quickly changed into his costume to assume the role of King Herod in the children's pageant -- which was a complete riot. The lines were funny, the kids were unpredictable and funny, and we all had a great time watching. One of my favorite parts was watching Colsen "die" by falling out of his throne onto the floor, and the scootching away behind the curtain.
To commemorate the church's anniversary, I was asked to write a script for a slide-show/video. Here is the finished product:

Our church community is so awesome!
